How did Mike Nkuna make his money?

He made it through property development. The businessman ventured into the business field in 1979 by working in his father's butchery to help support his family.

Mike set up a construction company to take advantage of the subsidies the apartheid government was offering to black residents at the time.

His first breakthrough came in 1983 when the Soweto municipality offered to sell him a plot of land for R100 000. He gladly accepted the offer and purchased the land after securing a loan from Perm Bank. At the same time, BP filling petrol station approached the entrepreneur offering to buy the plot from him.

However, he declined. Instead, he urged BP to help him develop the land into a small shopping centre. After getting an offer, he approached Shell, and to his surprise, they gave him a better deal than BP.

He established a small shopping centre in Soweto and the first organized shopping outlet in the area, for that matter, in 1986. Seeing its success, he was motivated to develop similar projects around. Today, he has countless projects to his name.
